Succession Planning: A Few Small Steps Will Secure Your Business’ Future

For most business owners, their businesses are a major part of their lives. They have invested blood, sweat, and tears into building it and have both emotional and financial ties to its success. For this reason, planning for a business’ future is challenging. Often no successors are readily apparent and the business owner can’t imagine life without the business. What happens? Nothing gets done. No planning occurs. And when the business owner departs – expectedly or unexpectedly – chaos ensues and much of the value created evaporates. This month, we will share the few key things you MUST do to secure your business for the future and provide you the tools to get started.
